Phillip Daigle was born and grew up in an Acadian community in Northern Maine. Like most of his Acadian neighbors, he had never heard of Acadia and knew nothing of the history of his early ancestors. Half a century later, Phil's interest in genealogy uncovered the history of Acadia which climaxed with the expulsion and diaspora of the Acadians from the colony they established and occupied for one hundred years. Phil's stories seek to bring the early years of the colony of Acadia to life.
